Printed in Le Petit Parisien, 5/7/39. This piece is from a series of images of French criminals that were reproduced in this tabloid newspaper, where photos of wanted and condemned criminals appeared each day.

Prints were hand painted in order to heighten contrast, so that they could be better reproduced in a newspaper. This retouching is attributed to two Italians.
